VE Day -

Monumental stories in Miniature

8 May 1945, now known as VE Day, saw the beginning of the end of the Second World War – the conflict that claimed the lives of millions and reshaped the future of countries and continents. Seventy-five years on, Victory in Europe (VE) Day is recalled by the last of the generation that were there and celebrated by the many generations that followed.

 

In 2020, we remember the first hopeful steps towards lasting peace. The story of VE Day, a key moment in the lives of millions of people, is told through a £2 coin design by Royal Mint designer Dominique Evans.
